You seriously don’t know how just time flies by and it has been a year since you married each other. It may seem like just yesterday when you said “I do,” but a whole year has passed and now you’re looking for first-anniversary ideas to celebrate the occasion! As the years go by, perhaps your anniversaries begin to sneak up on you, with you and your loved one seemingly always ending up going out to dinner again. Or perhaps the big day comes and goes, and you don’t do anything at all. So, here are 5 most romantic ways which make your anniversary truly special and memorable to celebrate your first anniversary.
First Anniversary Ideas
Ever wish you could relive your wedding day? (Only every day, right?) You can! Sort of. Go back in time and revisit the place where you said your vows. If you got married at a hotel, book a room for the evening. If you got married at a restaurant, go back for dinner. Indulge in dessert too. or you can have a candid photoshoot again to relieve and cherish those memories.
It’s tradition to eat the top layer of your wedding cake on your first anniversary. Take that custom to the next level by finding the most romantic local spot you can think of to have your cake. Whether it’s moonlit or the park where you met, make it extra special by finding a place that means something to you.
3. Take a Second Honeymoon
Time flies when you’re having fun. But if the rest, relaxation, and bliss of your honeymoon feel oh so far away-get out of town. Literally. It doesn’t have to be as grandiose as your honeymoon (but it totally can be); it just has to be time spent together, and away, making memories as you kick off your second year of marriage and the rest of your lives together.
We’re not talking the usual Friday night in with popcorn and wine. Think more along the lines of a luxurious and relaxing in a spa… candles, music, and more. Ditch your usual takeout options and cook up your favorite meal together, or order in from your favorite upscale restaurant.
Treat yourselves to something special to help commemorate your anniversary, whether it’s a right-hand ring for you and the latest tech gadget for him or something you can purchase together that will last forever, like a piece of art or an antique. It just might be the first time since you got married that you treat yourselves.
Start your second year of marriage on a good note. Do something noble, something that will not just make you happy, but touch the hearts of a few others as well!
Take some kids from an orphanage out for a joy ride. End the day by cutting a cake with them and treating them to their favorite food. You will definitely feel good after celebrating this special day with them. Or you can adopt a underprivileged child and sponsor her.
